 Public Works Projects

The Public Works Department has an extremely busy construction season scheduled this summer.  As with any street or utility construction, there may be delays or closures in the area.  Please be patient, use caution and pay close attention to flaggers and other construction workers.  Safety of both the workers and the travelling public is of utmost importance in all of our work zones.  Below is a brief synopsis of each project.  If you have any questions about any of the projects, please contact the Public Works Department at 541-492-6730.

TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS

Washington/Oak/Kane Improvements:
The intent of this project is to make pedestrian improvements, ADA improvements, storm drainage improvements and other enhancements to increase the functionality and appearance of these streets that lead into the downtown core.  The improvements will tie in with the Highway 138E Corridor Improvements and will utilize elements outlined in the existing Downtown Master Plan and Waterfront Development Plan.  The project is currently under construction, with a planned completion date of November 2015.

HWY 138 Corridor Solutions & Transportation Enhancement Project:
The City and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) have been working together for several years to facilitate a project to make significant improvements on Highway 138E in Downtown Roseburg.  ODOT has designed and bid the project and constrction is expected to start in July.  The project limits start on Harvard Avenue near the high school and head east encompassing Washington and Oak from Harvard to Stephens Street, Stephens and Pine Streets from Oak to Diamond Lake Boulevard, Diamond Lake Boulevard from Stephens to Fowler Street, Spruce Street from Oak to Douglas and Douglas Avenue from Spruce to Stephens.    For more information please visit the project website at:  www.Roseburg138.com

Stephens Street Overlay - Stewart Parkway to Newton Creek Road:
This project includes several elements.  The major components include the following: 

*     The top two inches of the existing asphalt will be removed by grinding and then replaced with a new two-inch overlay.
*     Curb ramp improvements will be made at intersections within project limits as required to comply with the Americans and Disabilities Act.
*     A new mid-block pedestrian crosswalk with a refuge island and appropriate safety treatments (rectangular rapid flashing beacon, advance warning, striping, etc.) will be installed near Hewitt Avenue.

The project has been bid and is expected to begin construction in July.

2015 Slurry Seal Project:
As part of this year's pavement management program, the City will be contracting for slurry seals which are a very thin layer of aggregate with an asphalt emulsifier applied to a paved surface.  Slurry seals are used primarily as preventative maintenance to prolong the life of a paved surface.  The following street are scheduled to be slurry sealed later this summer.

STORM DRANAGE PROJECTS

Indianola Storm Drainage Improvements:
This project will replace an aging storm sewer system that currently runs under and between houses on Indianola Street and Luellen Drive.  The project involves the installation of approximately 900 feet of storm drainage piping, eight new manholes and seven new drainage inlets.  The new pipe will be constructed in Indianola Street and Lorraine Avenue.  The project has been bid and is expected to begin in July.

Cascade Court Storm Improvements:
The City is currently working with a local engineer to design a new storm drainage system to collect storm drainage on Cascade Court.  The current piping is shared with a private sanitary sewer system.  The intent is to install a new storm pipe to separate the drainage from the sanitary system.  Construction is expected later this summer.

URBAN RENEWAL PROJECTS

Washington/Oak/Kane Improvements:  
The intent of this project is to make pedestrian improvements, ADA improvements, storm drainage improvements and other enhancements to increase the functionality and appearance of these streets that lead into the downtown core.  The improvements will tie in with the Highway 138E Corridor Improvements and will utilize elements outlined in the existing Downtown Master Plan and Waterfront Development Plan.  The project is currently under construction, with a planned completion date of November 2015.

WATER PROJECTS

HWY 138 Water Main Improvements:
The contractor is close to completing this project to replace aging, undersized, or conflicting water mains in preparation for the Highway 138E Corridor Solutions Project.  The work to install 3,600 feet of water main and related appurtenances has been performed primarily at night.  The contractor is expected to complete the work in late June.

Cathodic Protection: 
This project will replace and upgrade the existing cathodic protection system on the 20, 24, and 30-inch diameter transmission mains between the Water Treatment Plant in Winchester and the main reservoir complex near Bellview Court.  The alignment of the transmission mains generally follows Stephens Street.  This project will extend the life of the current pipelines by preventing corrosion of the steel pipe.  The design has been completed and the project will be bid later this summer with construction occurring this fall. 

UPCOMING PROJECTS
The following projects are in various stages of design for construction later this year or next.

Spruce/Parrott Street Improvements:
Spruce Street south of Oak Avenue serves an underdeveloped industrial area between Oak and Mosher.  In this same area, Parrott Street serves a mainly residential area and wyes into Spruce Street at Lane Avenue.  Both streets are in very poor condition.  It is the City's intent to reconstruct both streets and improve the intersection of Spruce and Parrott to route non-local traffic between Oak and Mosher on to Spruce Street and use Parrott Street for residential access.  The City is currently in the process of awarding a contract for design services.  Construction is planned for summer of 2016. 

Stewart Parkway - Valley View to Harvey Court:
The City is currently in a process to select a consultant to completer the design on this project to widen Stewart Parkway, add bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and provide flood mitigation for Newton Creek.  The project will involve widening and realigning Stewart Parkway, to reduce the severity of the curves and to provide additional space for storm water detention during storm events.  The project will include the construction of sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides of this arterial street.

Deer Creek Multi Use Path:
The intent of this project is to beautify the gravel area where the City purchased and removed some dilapidated buildings on Jackson Street adjacent to Deer Creek.  The project will also provide a connection from Jackson Street to the path that runs north of the Public Safety Center to Stephens Street.  The project is currently being designed by City staff.

Downtown Parking Structure Improvements:
This project will address both aesthetic and safety/security issues associated with the Parking Structure in Downtown.  This is a valuable asset that is currently underutilized due to a perceived safety issue within the garage.  It is also a landmark structure near the entrance to the Downtown, which could be greatly improved aesthetically.  Staff is currently working with a consultant on cost estimates and feasibility assessment for the proposed improvements.

Telemetry Upgrades:
The telemetry system is the means by which the operators at the Water Treatment Plant can monitor and control pump stations and reservoir levels throughout the water system.  The City's system is past its useful life and the City hired a consultant to evaluate the system and make recommendations for future upgrades.  The study is complete and the first phase of upgrades is scheduled for the upcoming fiscal year.   

Traffic Signal Coordination:
The City has budgeted funds over the next four years to study and implement traffic signal coordination and timing upgrades within the Urban Renewal District.  Staff will be soliciting for traffic engineering services to begin the study this fiscal year.
